Welcome to Year 2
Please can the children bring their reading books and reading record book to school every day. Can they also bring a water bottle and their P.E bag so these can be kept in our cloakroom.
This year Mrs Morgan Meek will teach Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Brabbs on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Fisher will support the class every day. Mrs Longley and Miss Colenutt will support our SEN children.
PE days are on a Monday and Thursday. This year the children will be going out whilst the weather permits so they will need both an indoor and outdoor PE kit. Outdoor PE kit – jogging bottoms, white t-shirt, jumper or hooded jacket and trainers.
Children will need outdoor clothes, wellies and a warm coat every Friday for our Forest school adventures.
There will be a spelling test on a Friday and new spellings will come home on a Friday for the following week. The spellings will be linked to what the children have been learning and key Year 2 words.
The children will have beat that on a Friday. The sheet they have completed will come home for you to look over again and for them to have another go and fill in any blank spaces they may have.
The children are expected to read for 10 minutes every day or at least 4 times a week. This needs to be recorded in their reading record book with how many pages they have read and a simple comment. Your child will be heard read within school at least twice a week. Once with their individual reading book and then in a Guided Reading group with the teacher.
Every fortnight on a Thursday morning we have Ackworth community library visiting our school. This gives the children the opportunity to select a library book which they can bring home or leave in school. The scheme is set up so children can share their books with you at home and build a love for reading. The books can be read to the children or by the children. All that we ask, can the children return the book every fortnight so it can be either returned or re-stamped. This helps us keep a track of the books and it ensures that children are taking home a wide selection of different genres.
Topics for this year

We will be taking trips during the year, which will be linked to the above topics. We will inform you of these closer to the time.

Thank you for your support
Mrs Brabbs, Mrs Morgan Meek and Mrs Fisher
